His wife may indeed be "First Lady" but I believe that there is a lot of work being an International VP and President.

Given that we shouldn't have a lot in the way of progress to look forward to.

Do you think some younger people want to be a club president to have the fact added to their resume?
Do you think some older people want to be a club president to have the fact added to their obituary?

BTW: Every lady should be someone’s “First Lady,” or at least “Queen-for-a-Day.”

That job is thankless, they have a ton of work to do and for the most part they are happy when its over. Ask an old one or two.

BUT...... they need to take it off of auto pilot and get really inventive.

From what I've observed, most do it for the prestige in the "click", and you are definately right about the above. They need to develop more of an attitude of "how can we improve the club", rather than "this is the way it's always been done".

When our unit had a meeting to discuss the revised constitution, the main reason for keeping the old was "It's worked for fifty years." I kid you not. Sal.

I have a lot of trouble believing that quote. I know Jim quite well, having been his webmaster. He isn't young, but he is known for being a hard worker. I might believe that it was a tongue-in-cheek remark.

We haven't heard a lot about the past International Rally on the forums. Can any attendees give a thorough description of the events and facilities? AT 500 dollars a pop without travel expenses I would like to know what was so enjoyable about it and whether it is a hit or a miss going forward.

Even though I don't know him, and voted for the other candidate , I would be inclined to take the remark as tongue in cheek until I see something that would indicate otherwise

Having just spent 5 days at the Region 7 rally with them I have to agree that the remark was tongue-in-cheek. He has a very good sense of humor. We had couple discussions and he struck me as being a pretty straight shooter. Our installation of officers was a very laid back affair. I think he understands that somethings need to change but we can't throw the baby out with the bath water.

The last 2 IP knew that change was needed and did nothing. In fact the last one did all he could to kill the change that was on the table with his you will have to leave speech to the Delegates and the one before that kicked the can down the road.

The last change of any magnitude was the dissension to use plastic bases on the award statues and fewer white cotton gloves.

What was the dress code at the installation of officers?

Great picture, looks like a fun rally.
